NAI Enhances SWaP-Optimized Systems for Rugged Mil-Aero Applications with the release of their new SOSA™-aligned 68ARM4 Single Board Computer

BOHEMIA, NY – March 2024 -- North Atlantic Industries, Inc. (NAI), a leading supplier of embedded computing solutions, is proud to announce the release of the 68ARM4, a state-of-the-art 3U OpenVPX SOSA™-aligned Single Board Computer (SBC), designed to ‘level-up’ the computing solutions field in rugged air, land, and sea applications.

The 68ARM4 boasts the power of the NXP® Layerscape® LX2 Processor Family, leveraging ARM® core technology with a choice of 8, 12, or 16 Cortex-A72 cores, at speeds of up to 2.2 GHz. Alongside, it offers a baseline configuration of 32 GB DDR4 SDRAM with error correction code (ECC) memory and can accommodate up to 512 GB of on-board SATA solid-state disk (SSD) storage. The 68ARM4 enables efficient management of high-performance customer software applications while maintaining a low power consumption profile.

With its SOSA™-aligned module profile, the 68ARM4 provides a choice of a standard XMC site or two factory-fitted NAI smart I/O function modules, offering over 100+ different functions to choose from. This flexibility allows users to configure the 68ARM4 to meet their unique needs, making it ideally suited for rugged Mil-Aero I/O and processing solution across diverse application domains.

"We are thrilled to introduce the 68ARM4 Single Board Computer, designed in alignment with the SOSA™ Technical Standard and pushing the boundaries of computing capabilities for the most demanding environments," said Lino Massafra, VP of Sales and Marketing at NAI. "With its robust features, configurability, and adaptability with NAI's Smart I/O function modules, the 68ARM4 sets a new standard for off-the-shelf solutions in the rugged electronics market.

The 68ARM4 is designed to address the needs of rugged intensive I/O and computing applications, delivering off-the-shelf solutions that accelerate the deployment of SWaP-optimized systems. Whether used in airborne, ground, or maritime applications, the 68ARM4 provides a reliable and efficient computing solution that meets the most stringent requirements of modern military and aerospace systems.
